President Barack Obama late Sunday afternoon met with the families of the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, and took time to hold the granddaughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary principal, Dawn Hochsprung.
Principal Hochsprung was a hero who died trying to protect her students, lunging toward the gunman in an attempt to stop him.
Cristina Hassinger, daughter of Principal Hochsprung, posted this image via Twitter tonight:
My mom would be SO proud to see President Obama holding her granddaughter. But not as proud as I am of her. twitter.com/Chass63/status…

Dawn Hochsprung’s own Twitter feed shows what a great person and principal she was, and how much she loved learning, teaching, and her kids.
